Math and Science Specialist, Over 15 Years of Educational Experience

Makes learning enjoyable
Nick has been helping my son in high school math and science and is superb. He works to ensure that my son understands the material, not just get his assignments done. My son describes him as nice, really smart, great at explaining things, and very chill. He actually looks forward to his tutoring sessions, which is a terrific bonus. Based on our experience, highly recommend.

Algebra 2
Nikunj tutored my daughter in Algebra 2. He did an amazing job. My daughter was struggling with Algebra. Her grade was in the low 70. She had 2 sessions (total of 3 hours) with Nikunj and scored a 95 on her mid term exam. I will recommend this tutor to anyone who is struggling with Math. Another note, he is on time and prepared to teach. I will be scheduling more sessions with him.

Geometry tutor
He is very knowledgeable and conveys the ideas clearly and understandably. He comes weekly and has enabled our son to stay on top of the math and has helped free up some of his time for other coursework.

A huge help in geometry!
My daughter has been absorbing and understanding more each week working with Nic. He is flexible, clear in his explanation and extremely knowledgeable. He makes an effort to explain how his teaching may differ from her class and accommodates according to my daughter’s comfort. He checks in with her throughout the session to ensure she understands.

Best Ever
I actually look forward to doing math! This is something I never thought I would say. My confidence improves after every session. Recommend Nik to any and all, but particularly for those who think math is painful. :)

Great Earth Science tutor
Nik did a nice job with a final review for Avi. Gave him pointers on how to review minute details, test taking strategies and to stay calm during the exam. He also told him to practice 20 questions a day till the exam. The sessions have really helped and I think it’s the first time that our son understands Earth Science.

Great Tutor
Nikunj is very relaxed and calm yet knowledgeable. He has worked with both my 18 year old and 11 year old for about 6 months now, and they love him. He's able to clearly impart new math concepts to them and was a real help to my 18 year old with regard to SAT prep.

C to an A :)
There aren’t enough words to express how thankful we are to Mr. P. He was very personable, knowledgeable and patient. He was also very flexible which was a tremendous help because my daughter is also an athlete and during the season her schedule was non consistent. His lessons were designed to simplify the material for my her and with his help she went from a C to an A in her Regents class. We couldn’t be happier :)
